Explore Stockholm’s enchanting forests, vast landscapes, and rugged Baltic coastline on foot.
Stockholm has a very special topography—one that you would expect a fairytale kingdom to have rather than a modern major city. It's spread across 14 islands on the banks of the archipelago, at the point where Lake Mälaren meets the Baltic Sea. Thick forests meet rolling hills and rocky coastlines, and all of this beautiful landscape has been wonderfully routed for hikers to get into nature easily.
Three of Sweden’s classic long-distance hiking trails run through Stockholm County. This guidebook gives you a taste of each one, all of which start within easy reach of Stockholm City Centre.
